What's In A Name?

What's In A Name?

I’m in the process of changing my original business name, Moonset Meditation, to Pathways To Serenity With Glenda. 

I love teaching and my sole purpose in becoming a meditation teacher was to help people handle their stress.

Since I began teaching in 2015, this has grown to include teaching qigong, reiki, facilitating retreats, speaking engagements and coaching on tips and strategies to simply make life a little easier.

But here’s one of the things I’ve learned along the way - you have to be open to make a change.

Front Row Living

Front Row Living

Have you ever read something, that just in a few lines can have a profound affect on your thinking? On your life? 

I saw an image shared on Facebook by my friend Debbie. Perhaps you’ve seen it too. I’ve seen the same picture posted since then with slightly different wording, but it was this caption that grabbed me - and it still does.

When I saw it that day, February 11, 2013 I saved it, printed it and taped it to the wall beside my bathroom mirror. it’s still there.

Leaving Safe For The Unknown

Leaving Safe For The Unknown

There’s a place where you sit that feels very good. It’s comfortable, safe and you feel secure when you’re there. You can do what you like when you’re sitting in that chair and no matter what someone says, it’s easy to stay comfortably enthroned on it. It’s your ‘comfy chair’ and it secures your place in the world.

Don't Be Afraid To Be A Beginner

Don't Be Afraid To Be A Beginner

As I finally sit down to write this first blog post I need to heed my own message - don't be afraid to be a beginner! Its not that I don't like to write; research and essays were one of my favourite things to do in my later university years. But getting started and actually doing more than just thinking about it.... that is often my challenge and sometimes I need a little courage to get started. 

When the lightbulb finally went off and I realized that meditation helped me feel better every day, I thought about teaching. I wanted to share the peace that it  brought me with other people who were suffering from the stress in their lives.
